Punch Card K.O.
Have you been keeping up with our debate? If not, give mine and Kellen’s last articles a quick read;
Kellen made a very good point about keeping the punch card in a safe place. I can not knock that logic.
That being said, I think the best thing to do right now is to give a real-world example that I have been through with a punch card.
No, it’s not a traumatic story. However, if the people reading this want to read this in a trembling voice, I can not stop them.
There is a local burger shop down the road and for a year they had punch cards for customers who order their burger combo deals. Order 6 and your 7th one is free! It’s a great deal for those who go to the burger shop regularly; much like Kellen and his coffee shop.
And when I do get one, there is a great chance that I will lose it in some way, shape or form. Whether it’s me throwing it out because I haven’t been there in a while, or even just losing it in my car; the possibilities are endless.
I stand by my original statement, paper or hard copy punch cards are obsolete and companies should consider a digital version if they do something like a punch card promotion.
